The First Sail


Published 2015


The First Sail film includes footage from academic events in which J. Hillis Miller was a plenary speaker ('Who? or What? Jacques Derrida', University of Florida, 2006), as well as the exclusive footage of the plenary lecture Jacques Derrida read at the conference on 'J' in honor of J. Hillis Miller, in 2003. The film thus operates as an installation, a work as a net-work of conference directing and presentations, edited volumes based on these conferences, filming J. Hillis Miller with an explicit intention of making a documentary film, and then editing the film, and screening it at various events which have become part of this volume and as-of-yet-emerging projects. The film-book 'The First Sail: J. Hillis Miller', with essays by Henry Sussman, Sarah Dillon, Charlie Gere, Nicholas Royle, Éamonn Dunne and Michael O’Rourke, Dragan Kujundžić, Julian Wolfreys and J. Hillis Miller, is based on this documentary film. It is freely available at http://openhumanitiespress.org/the-first-sail.html
